‘Everyone else was in a minor condition.’

QA Hospital said that not all of the patients were admitted for drug-related issues.

The spokeswoman added: ‘It’s difficult to say how many were actually drug-related.

‘For example, this morning we had three more people come in but those were in relation to assault or intoxication.’
